HIV Testing

Negative results from 4th generation DUO test after 6 weeks & 10 weeks & 2 days.

I am a male, had a protected the vaginal sex with CSW.
But the condom broke , we stopped as soon as we realized.
Not sure how long the exposure was.

This is my only exposure.

I was under tremendous stress & anxiety since then.

I had done the 4th generation DUO test at the lab (in the US at LabCorp) after 6 weeks.

I did another test at the lab (in the US at LabCorp) after 10 weeks & 3 days.

Both the test results came as NonReactive.

Are my results conclusive ?

Should I test again after 12 weeks?
What are the changes of the this result changing from NonReactive between 10th week & 12 week.

thank you.

Should I do the PEP or not?

Hello everyone,

Thank you in advance for your support. This morning I had sex with a girl I've been dating for 2 weeks and the condom broke. She did an HIV test on Apr 20 resulting negative.

I already went to the hospital and consulted a doctor which first suggested to do the PEP (the girl had many partners before) and then recommended to just get her to test today. The doctor said if she's negative today there's no need for me to do the PEP as with 2 negative tests in a month the risk of being infected would be very very low (0.001%) even in the case she had sex with other partners while she was dating with me.

I got tested today and I'm HIV negative and I'm taking her to test in 3 hours. If she's negative I won't take the PEP pills. If she's positive I will. What do you guys think about this?

Thank you!

Are my results on 6th & 10th week after exposure conclusive

I had an exposure , due to a broken condom during the vaginal sex with CSW.
I had tested for HIV 4th generation / DUO test after 6 weeks & 10 weeks.
Both the results came as Negative (NonReactive) .

This is my only exposure.

How conclusive are my results?
Can they change between 10th week & 12th week?

Could you please help me with my anxiety.

PLEASE ARE MY NEGATIVE RESULTS CONCLUSIVE EVEN WITH ORAL THRUSH

I had an exposure 6 times on two consective days. Unprotected virginal sex. I took PEP for 28 days which i started within 72hours. I took HIV duo test at 14 weeks 1 day post PEP (18 weeks 2 days post exposure) which came out non reactive (0.02). I also took Hepatitis C rapid antibody test at 122 days post exposure and it was negative. The problem is that i have been having oral thrush for almost 3 months now. Can i rely on my results or should i wait for six months in case of delayed seroconversion? Is my hepatitis C result also conclusive? Am really scared please help. By the way the baseline HIV antibody test for both me and the lady i had sex with was negative but to rule out possibility of window period i took PEP.

worried about toddler

Hi i had an exposure(oral recivsex with a girl) in mid december 2018, since then i got tested at 45, 72, 83,111 days past exposure all 4th gen tests in GUM clinic London, However recently i am getting more sore throats than i used to get and i had one episode of ulcers near ulva, are my tests conclusive? I am worried because as child i used to get more episodes of cold which upon googling might be probably because i might have CVID

I have a toddler who keeps putting hands in her mouth, yesterday when i was holding her she touched my mouth when lips are a bit open, probably got saliva on her hands and she kept fingers in her mouth within a minute, now i am feeling bad and worrying , if all i am late seroconverter am i putting my kid at risk?

H.I.V AND NEUROPATHY SYMPTOMS.

Hi AIDS Vancouver Staff,
I have some questions that are not getting out of my mind.

I am a gay man, and I am just concerning about something. I was just wondering if H.I.V has any link with Neuropathy.
I am going to tell you a brief description what's going on.

Recently I have experienced some burning,tingling, pins and needles sensation in my legs and feet. I went to my primary Dr. and I was told I have plantar fasciitis.
The doctor put me on this medication for it. It looks like the medication is not doing any good for me. I'd also like to mention I am a "pre diabetic".

I got tested for H.I.V, it came back negative. It has been three months since I had sex for the last time. We just had mutual masturbation, showering together, kissing and some rubbing and came.

Just outta curiosity, I have Googled it, and all I can see there's a link between H.I.V and Neuropathy. At this point I am more worried and anxious than never.
I was just wondering if you are able to clarify my concerns.

I am experiencing some symptoms such as burning sensation in my legs and feet, weight loss, stomach issues, rash, itchy skin, and pimples, red bumps on my neck, groin area and face. I have not experienced any fever.
I’ve been really anxious and worried lately.
Can these symptoms be all related to H.I.V infection or just related to anxiety and stress?
These are the tests I’ve done so far:

-At 54 days - ROUTINE (CENTAUR) 4TH GENERATION HIV ANTIBODY/ANTIGEN TEST “(Negative)”
Can this test be conclusive at 54 days?

I am currently on PreP. I started it couple months ago.
I got a 4th Generation Test (Blood drawn at Lab) after 30 days (follow up) and it came back negative.

Does PreP suppress or hide the virus in an H.I.V (4th Generation) Test while taking Prep daily?

Is there any link between H.I.V and Neuropathy Please help!

I have all these stuck on my mind, and I can't get over of it. The more I think, more anxious and worried I get. These past three months have been so overwhelming.

Thank you.

Penis head Insertion for 10-20 seconds. Post-PEP testing

I had an exposure of penis head entering twice in my anus for just 10-20 seconds. No ejaculation, just pre-cum.
I got scared and was on PEP for 30 days. I got tested today exactly at 6 weeks or 42 days post pep with 2 HIV tests, one was Rapid uni-gold HIV test and rapid Alere Determine Ag/Ab 4th generation HIV test at the same clinic. both came out negative at 6 weeks post pep. I was wondering will this testing shows that i am negative and what are my chances at 3 month testing ? I know post pep guideline says 3 months testing. i was just nervous and got tested at 6 weeks. And do i also need a 6 months test ? Thanks

Stupid Mistake

I was manic for a while and got involved with some dom/sub play with another guy in my area. He collected some cum in a container about 3 days before I came over and kept it in the fridge. I wound up being convinced to swallow it. We then had protected sex.

My question is would the refrigerated cum be a large risk factor? I tested with the INSTI test 32 days post exposure and it was non reactive. My only concern is that on one side of my neck I can now feel my lymph node which is about the size of a pea, but not painful. Thanks for any help you can give.

Condom Broke

Good evening.
I had sexual intercourse with my girlfriend last night.
The condom broke and I immediately pulled out. I have not ejaculated.

Both of us are still 20. We only had sex with each other. She has had no previous sexual partners. She has never kissed anyone before me. She has never done anything sexual basically before me. Same goes for me. I haven't done anything sexual and she is my first.

Both of us have never have never used used needles before. Never have we used drugs.

We have never received blood donations too.

My parents are negative for sure. Her parents too.

What are the chances of HIV transmission?

It's been a day now. Should I go get PEP or should I just let it go?

Thanks for your help.

Question regarding OraQuick and chances of contracting HIV from being in contact with vaginal fluid

Hello! I would first like to thank you all for the amazing work you are doing for the people, I have been going through vast array of informations on this website and found all of them very helpful.

I hate to admit it but, I had a sexual encounter with a sex worker exactly 8 weeks and two days ago. During the session, we had protected vaginal sex for about five minutes, she rimmed me for about a minute after, gave me unprotected oral sex, then I fingered her and masturbated my penis with some vaginal fluids present on my hand (I am circumsized, but my inner foreskin is still exposed as it was done when I was 16). What mentally destroyed me about this incident is that during the following month, I have had recurrent mouth ulcers.

I understand that use of condom during vaginal sex with fairly effective and that unprotected oral sex is negligible risk. However, I have been having trouble finding information regarding having vaginal fluid on hand and then touching penis, and receiving rimming. Are there any risk in these activities?

Also, I have taken OraQuick tests at 3 and 6 weeks post exposure, which came back negative. Is this result accurate or do you recommend that I retest at 8 weeks or 12 weeks?

Thank you.

Regards,

A very concerned man in Florida.
